WW2 Wilkinson Sword 1st Pattern F-S Fighting Knife

Sold Item Notice

I guarantee this to be an authentic WW2 Wilkinson Sword made Fairbairn-Sykes Fighting Knife, 1st Pattern. It dates from around 1942 as it has the revised etching border for the Wilkinson Sword logo. With the wings amiss / removed, this knife was almost certain to have been issued to and worn, perhaps even used by a British Commando.

The service sharpened 17.2 cm blade is in good order and firm in the hilt. The knife overall is in good shape, as is the leather and steel chape sheath. It has the correct Newey patented retaining popper, which works and is in good order. There are no markings to the back of the sheath; this is correct for the mid / late production 1st patterns issued to British servicemen. Full sized / further pictures available upon request. Item reference number 692.
